Inspiration from the circle of art

Namaste,

I still need to update posts from the road…getting there in due time;)

I am  finally able to reconnect with the vibrant energy of inspiring creatives over at the circle of art….I have been travelling and following interesting projects and ideas but I have been missing touching base with amazing people over at the circle of art:)

It is quite interesting bringing that inspiration into the reality I am experiencing at the moment…..Thank you Petrea and everyone at over at the circle of Art!!!

Sending lots of love and sunshine especially to those in cold weather 😉

A special artistic collaboration nurturing the spirit of SPIRAL CHANNELS

It was so great to connect with inspiring artist, friend and mother Abha Bhagwat .

It is so wonderful how things brought us together… From initial cyber interactions while following an on-line course on intuitive painting hosted by amazing Petrea Hansen Adamidis based in Toronto, Canada….My recent whereabouts in India finally made us meet in person, connect and create together!!!

Her work and environment is bursting with creative ideas that just keep flowing and are so contagious:) It was an honor taking part in art workshops and experience her artwork. The amazing creative boost and the wonderful artistic environment outside the box just made me want to share the experience and this great connection….

I really wanted to introduce Abha to the amazing creative network of SPIRAL CHANNELS  I am part of (an international intercultural and interdisciplinary project in constant evolution).  So here it is a collaborative artwork celebrating the process and connection of two artists coming from different worlds yet finding a familiar ground to express and explore inner worlds….

I look forward to do more artwork with Abha and to see her over at the SPIRAL CHANNELS.…a great community where creative collaborations flourish and bring together inspiring people from all over the world… A great project by artist Vlado Franjevic

We harvest what we plant :)

Another inspirational prompt over at the Circle of Art

Here is my response….

The journey starts from our inner seeds, expanding  to the fabric of the world throughout everything we do/feel /perceive in life….From planting seeds in the ground, connecting with mother earth and appreciate the planet to planting special seeds with our energy and connect with people, evolving and growing together…Harvesting is part of a special process of being…

Inner Eye inspired by Fun Monday Challenge #15

challengebutton

This week Fun monday Challenge #15 over at 14 Secrets is based on art journaling and prompts our super creative self to adventure through layers!

Funny enough I started a similar process yesterday as I just needed to create and create and create….so after experimenting on my daily journal I have been working on scattered pieces throughout moments I could find a lil moment…. I wan’ t quite sure what I was up to…but I kept going trusting the process…later when I read Lani’ s post and about the challenge it all came together and my intuition lead me to create this piece….

inner eye

Thank you Lani for great inspiration and happy information!!!

What is it inspiring you o do?

A week through creative affirmation cards

This week I have been focusing on affirmations inspired by the beautiful journey through the pilot course Kiss of the Muse with Joy Hellman.

I decided to make daily affirmation cards combining some ideas from my world and the point I am at…

I had to adapt to whatever materials were at hand, like kids pastels, markers and found paper LOL 🙂

The most important aspect though has been the mindful consideration of something quite simple in principle…

It has been a very interesting journey exploring the inner self and layering with the acquired mindful material…. there is a strong Asian, and in particular Japanese influence as I am also am exploring and getting back to learn a bit more about that fascinating part of the world!

So here is the developed sequence:

Magical Tour of Life inspired by the journey with Kiss of the Muse

Life got extremely hectic this summer luckily we get more sunshine and incredible energy to be super active:)

Recently I have been experiencing another amazing creative journey with Joy Hellman and her inspiring creative pilot course Kiss of the Muse…

In this creative journey once the seed is planted things just start blooming and connect through different parts of life and with the life of others.

A nice mantra I came across while traveling through East Asia came to mind so I revisited and altered my original shot….

The more I ponder on my creative concos, I experience and share creative moments and appreciate wonderful creations by others I feel that the special link that in many ways encompasses us all..we are all one through our subjective unique way of being and creating….

This painting was inspired by my progress through this new exciting adventure with Joy and the group Kiss of the Muse…

magicaltour of life

Another interesting idea that came up was that of photojournaling…well I have been kinda addicted to that for a long while now 🙂 and while before I was digitizing and archiving everything these days I find that some social media like Instagram can be used as  tools  to create and share a piece of our world… Or Pinterest where one can make, share and partecipate in collective visual boards …

If you want to see the world from my perspective you can find me @lizzieartnsurf on Instagram and Lizzie Bellotto on Pinterest, what does your world look like?

Have a great day world!
